Retailers responded on the Bleeding Cool Bestseller List to Valiant’s launch for The Book Of Death #1. One single retailer was disappointed that it sold very poorly, compared with how many he had ordered. However another talked about using the extra discount offered by Valiant to retailers, to pass the savings on to their customers, and saw the book sell very well indeed, their best seller of the week. And another, without any passed-on-discount, talked about selling out instantly and wishing they had ordered more.
Well the latter is about to get an opportunity with the second printing of the comic, out on the 19th August.
And if you just can’t wait that long to get a copy you can find all the dark, deep spoilers right here.
(W) Robert Venditti (A/CA) Robert Gill “A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.” The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died. Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world. Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over … or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him? The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (Armor Hunters: Harbinger) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe … and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today. Scheduled to ship 08/19/15.
